France - A film to discover Lucio Dalla from an unusual point of view

“Letters to Lucio” (Caro Lucio ti scrivo), the film by Riccardo Marchesini on Lucio Dalla’s characters and songs is presented in Lyon on the 11th of September

Some years after the death of Lucio Dalla, Egle Petazzoni, his fictitious postwoman, has to deliver new letters addressed just to him. Who keeps on writing him? And why?

The senders are Dalla’s “kids”, i.e. the characters of some of his best songs, as Futura or Anna and Marco, as Meri Luis or the protagonists of the songs “Com’è profondo il mare” and “L’anno che verrà”. All of them have a secret to tell him and a thank to say a final goodbye.

The story of this bizarre correspondence is narrated in “Letters to Lucio” (Caro Lucio ti scrivo), the film by Riccardo Marchesini based on the homonymous play by Cristiano Governa.

Shot in Bologna, Comacchio, Milan and Berlin, “Letters to Lucio” has been produced by Giostra film with the support of the Emilia-Romagna Film Commission, under the patronage of the Municipality of Bologna and the Lucio Dalla Foundation, and is distributed by I Wonder Pictures.

The letters inspired by Dalla’s songs have been interpreted by a distinguished cast, including Ambra Angiolini, Neri Marcorè, Ottavia Piccolo, Piera Degli Esposti, Grazia Verasani, Alessandro Benvenuti and Andrea Roncato.

After being successfully presented in more than 140 Italian cinemas, the film is now presented in several important European cities. The appointment in Lyon is on Wednesday 11th h 7:00 pm at the Goethe Loft.

The event is organized in co-operation with the office for Cultural activities abroad of Emilia-Romagna Region.

The film director Riccardo Marchesini will attend.
